Kyuss / Queens of the Stone Age

Kyuss / Queens of the Stone Age: [LINK BELOW] is a split EP which was released in December 1997. The first three songs are performed by Kyuss and the last three songs by guitarist Josh Homme's next band, Queens of the Stone Age. It includes a cover of the song "Into the Void" by Black Sabbath from their album Master of Reality. "If Only Everything" is an early version of the song "If Only", which appeared on Queens of the Stone Age's eponymous debut album. A re-recorded version of "Born to Hula" appeared as a b-side on one edition of the "Lost Art of Keeping a Secret" single release, and later as a track on the Stone Age Complications EP while this one includes backing vocals by former Kyuss lead singer John Garcia. "Spiders and Vinegaroons" was used as the menu theme for the live DVD/CD release, Over the Years and Through the Woods. "Fatso Forgotso" and "Fatso Forgotso Phase II (Flip the Phase)" were later re-released on Muchas Gracias: The Best of Kyuss.

I posted this a few years ago but the links got pulled; which surprised me as the album has been out-of-print for years. However, you can still find it here: Stonerobixxx.
